Taiye and Kehinde Sonaike, two young pastors identified as twins, are currently on the run after reportedly defiling and impregnating a 12-year-old girl in the Oworonshoki area of Lagos State.
The brothers allegedly engaged in the deed for almost a year, but it was only lately that it resulted in pregnancy.
The twins allegedly conspired with a nurse for whom they paid N11,000 to terminate the pregnancy, according to a child rights advocate.
However, prior to the abortion attempt, the young girl spoke to her mother, which resulted in the nurse’s detention and subsequent release.
Meanwhile, the suspected rapists have been on the run, and no sign of them or their families has been found in their region, according to the lawyer.
“These two men from Open Heaven Church, Pastors Sonaike Taiye and Kehinde, raped and impregnated a 12-year-old girl in the Oworonshoki area of Lagos,” he added.
“They paid N11, 000 to the nurse who was supposed to abort the girl’s pregnancy. Unfortunately for them, the girl confided in her parents on Tuesday night, the night before the abortion was scheduled.
“The victim’s mother poisoned herself out of pain, but she sought therapy and is now healthy.”
“The matter was passed on to an activist, who directed them to Mirabel, a sexual assault referral center in Ikeja, Lagos, where the girl was examined medically.
“The case was reported to the police station last Friday, and the nurse who attempted to abort the pregnancy was arrested, but she was freed on bond.
“However, the two men responsible for the crime are on the run. They and their family members evacuated the area. It’s been more than a week and they still haven’t been discovered.”
